Ladies, Before Engaging In Abortion, Here Are 7 Harmful Impacts You Should Consider

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the World Health Organization (WHO), abortion is defined as the termination of a pregnancy prior to 20 weeks of the baby's development inside the womb or the birth of a foetus weighing less than 500 grams. These definitions were developed by the National Center for Health Statistics.

In addition, abortion refers to the process of terminating a pregnancy by removing a foetus or embryo from the uterus. A miscarriage is the term used to describe the event that occurs when an abortion does not take place purposely.

Premarital sexual activity is the primary driving force behind a woman's decision to terminate a pregnancy through abortion. Having sexual relations prior to being married is not only dangerous but may also lead to the spread of illnesses. When a naive girl eventually becomes pregnant, she may feel the need to redeem herself from shame and therefore attempt to abort the baby that is growing inside of her womb. However, it may be unlucky for her to suffer complications as a result of carrying out this act, as she may be forced to redeem herself from shame.

The following are some of the negative consequences of having an abortion.

1. Injuries to the uterus or the cervix

Your future chances of becoming pregnant and having healthy pregnancies will be negatively impacted if you decide to undergo an abortion. It is possible that it will destroy your womb completely.

2. Significant amount of blood loss

Performing a self-induced abortion by taking tablets to induce labor might result in cramps and bleeding that can linger for many hours or even longer.

3. An infection that affects either the uterus or the fallopian tubes

Abortion has the risk of causing significant damage to the uterus; intestinal injury and severe infections are common complications of unlawful abortion that have the potential to hinder a woman's ability to become pregnant. Abortion is prohibited in some states.

4. The development of scar tissue on the interior of the uterus

Scarring to the cervix or damage to the uterus or fallopian tubes can result from having an abortion that is performed surgically in some situations. Because of these issues, it may be more difficult to conceive a child in the future.

5. A state of septic shock

According to research conducted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), the risk of complications following septic shock is approximately 2 percent. When bacteria have a greater chance of entering your bloodstream, you put yourself at a greater danger of going into septic shock.

6. Uterine perforation

It is possible for women to develop uterine perforation after having an abortion. Patients who have a uterine perforation typically experience heightened levels of stomach pain, increased bleeding, and fever.

7. Death

There is a risk that a woman could pass away as a result of having an abortion. It has been demonstrated that unsafe abortion can be the cause of anywhere from 4.7 percent to 13.2 percent of maternal deaths per year.

In conclusion, if you are a woman, you should avoid having sexual relations before you are married and exercise caution over the decision to get an abortion.
